Finding an experienced, reliable provider of Singapore funeral services and packages can help families and friends cope with the anguish of losing a loved one and ease their way into the grieving process.
Grief is a natural response to the death of someone close to you. Bereavement can be experienced in different ways, but a funeral service helps us to say goodbye to the deceased and remember that person the way we knew them in life.
A funeral ceremony can also help us to start acknowledging the reality that someone in our life is no longer physically present.
Funerals rites play other important roles, too, such as:
- Celebrating the significance of the life of the deceased.
- Gathering together those left behind to nurture a sense of continuity and hope.
- Providing a support system for family and friends.
- Allowing us to reflect on and embrace the cycle of life and death.
The immediate aftermath of a death in the family typically leaves those left behind in a state of shock and disbelief – even if the death was expected.
On top of this emotional trauma comes the added burden of having to deal with multiple mundane yet essential issues such as registering the death and settling financial and legal matters.
Fortunately, expert help is available when it comes to organising the funeral itself.
Entrust Funeral Service is interviewed by Channel News Asia!
Our funeral director, Eugene Tan, shares his insights on the funeral industry in Singapore with CNA.
Thank you Entrust Funeral Service for holding us in the space while we come to terms with the sudden passing of my father-in-law. From the hospital to the final resting place, Eugene has made sure that we were not lost.
Thank you for letting us grieve while handholding us at the same time. It was very reassuring and helpful.
Do please continue to provide your excellent service for the families who have recent departures. We truly are grateful to you and your team for walking with us in this journey.
May you continue to grow and provide light to those who are in need.
Firstly, I represent all my family members to thanks Eugene and his teammates for the great and efficient service and guidance given to our family members. Most important your pricing very reasonable.
Your effective funeral arrangements and guidance put us through the toughest moments we faced.
Thank you for provided us 6-star layout and tools and put us throughout the funeral with a very comfortable environment. I strongly believe my granny rested comfortable for 5 days and 4 nights.
Once again, I still felt grateful for the everything you all had done for us and all is in our budgets. Thank you so much. Most importantly, we don’t face any burden in financial.
Very professional service has been rendered to my family for our recent loss of a family member.
Despite a young team lead by an even younger enthusiastic director – Eugene, the type of service level provided has put other undertakers with much longer history in the same industry to shame.
Charges are reasonable in my opinion, though there’s no basis of comparison as one usually won’t be calling up many to check prices when such event occurs. But I’ve been hearing horror stories frequently pertaining to unreasonable billings from others.
Benefits of engaging a professional Singapore funeral services company
If someone you care about dies, emotions such as shock and confusion – and even misplaced but natural feelings of anger or guilt – often set in.
The empathetic approach of an experienced, dependable funeral director can help you get through your distress to allow you to pay the proper respects to your loved one.
He or she will also have the expertise to take care of the practicalities of making the funeral arrangements in a highly professional manner.
A compassionate, trustworthy funeral services company is essential to ensure the dignified departure of a loved one while easing the burden on those left behind in terms of emotional stress and a seemingly endless list of other things to organise.
Whether you want a simple or elaborate service, an experienced funeral director can take care of all the arrangements for you, catering for different religious preferences or organising a non-religious observance if the deceased was a freethinker.
Although cremation is the norm in Singapore because of scarcity of land, burials can also be arranged in one of the few cemeteries still operating on the island. You might want to bear in mind, though, that after 15 years the remains will have to be exhumed for cremation or reburial in a smaller, individual plot.
Entrust Funeral Service packages are underpinned by our core values of respect, sincerity, integrity, compassion, and reliability. We aim to make you feel that we’re holding your hand before, during, and after the entire funeral process.

HDB void deck funerals
While many funerals are traditionally held in places of worship, Singapore funeral services also often take place in the communal void deck beneath the Housing & Development Board (HDB) block of flats where the deceased lived.
One advantage of HDB void deck funerals is that the service is held near the homes of the deceased’s neighbours and friends.
Ahead of a funeral, most families want to hold a wake to pay respects to the departed, and HDB void decks often provide the venue for these occasions.
Entrust funeral director can help with getting approval from your town council for HDB void deck funerals and wakes.
Unlike funerals, memorial services are typically held in the absence of the deceased. Also known as celebrations of life, these services are usually held in a location of significance to the departed.
Memorial services can be held any time after the death of the individual and are typically less solemn than funerals and can help to make the grieving process less of an ordeal.
Entrust Funeral Service will treat your loved one with utmost respect. We'll ensure the experience you and your family have with us is truly pleasant.

What sets Entrust Funeral Service apart
We specialise in providing a comprehensive, one-stop funeral service package, including:
- Pre-planning for a funeral.
- Funeral coordination.
- Funeral supplies to cut out the middle man – including quality caskets and cremation urns.
- Post-funeral services such as memorial gatherings – not usually offered by other funeral directors.
We realise that funeral costs in Singapore can be a financial drain on families, so we strive to offer affordable funeral services without compromising on quality and dignity.
One of the ways we do this is by keeping all aspects of funeral organisation in-house, which also means less hassle for our customers, who get a streamlined service.
You’ll find we’re transparent in our pricing – including our Entrust Prestige Service – with any add-on fees clearly itemised.
We provide funeral services for Buddhists, Taoists, and Catholics and other Christians, and we organise observances for non-religious deceased.
Entrust’s funeral services and packages in Singapore

- Memorial services to be held later.
Buddhist Funeral Service
In Buddhist funerals, monks lead the chanting of sutras (religious teachings) to promote good karma for the deceased in their next life. An enlightenment ceremony prepares the soul for the afterlife.
Catholic Funeral Service
Catholic funerals – ecclesiastical funerals – honour God’s mercy, and pray for the soul of the faithful departed. They’re carried out in accordance with the prescribed rites of the Catholic Church, which offers Mass for the benefit of the soul and provides condolence for family and friends.
Other Christian Funeral Services
As with Catholic funerals, other Christian funerals honour the deceased and provide comfort for family and friends, while recalling the hope believers share in Jesus Christ and in the eternal peace of heaven.
Taoist Funeral Service
Traditionally, Taoists focus more on longevity and health than an afterlife. However, Taoist funerals commonly include rites aimed at helping the deceased with afterlife, and blessings for the family.
Non-religious Funeral Service
A non-religious funeral service may be held if the deceased did not practice any type of formal organised religion – to mark the death of atheists or humanists, for example. However, some of the same elements – such as eulogies – are included in the service.
Our post-funeral services consist of sea burial ceremony, 49-day ritual, 100-day ceremony, Gong Teck, ancestral tablet prayers, and prayers at the columbarium. Entrust’s one-stop service is created to provide the ultimate convenience to families.
